[movies]“Providing Access to Email Archives for Historical Research,” Sudheendra Hangal, Sit Manovit, Peter Chan, and Monica S. Lam - Mat Kelly
Archives of letters and documents belonging to individuals provide valuable insights into history. In the digital age, archival organizations have recognized the importance of email archives and often collect them from donors; however they find it difficult to screen, process and provide access to them, due to the challenges of the medium and the sheer volume of material. Building on the Muse research project at Stanford, we are designing solutions for libraries and archival organizations to sup...

[movies]“Public Displays of Affection: Digital Zine Archives and the Labor of Love,” Melissa Rogers - Mat Kelly
As self-published print culture artifacts distributed through small-scale networks and informal gift economies, zines pose unique and well-documented challenges not only to traditional archivists but also to those interested in digital preservation. Often of uncertain provenance, nonstandard size and shape, and a wide range of materials, zines are a medium that combines do-it-yourself (DIY) ethics with cut-and-paste aesthetics, defying formal conventions (and copyright laws) in order to tell int...

[movies]"Personal Artifacting" by Jan Emery - Mat Kelly
Archivists have an opportunity to inform the actions of individuals around preserving their personal collections; however, they risk losing this opportunity because the collections of ordinary citizens are broader than the traditional conceptualization of archival content. I argue for the extension of the concept of personal archiving to include what I call personal artifacting, which reflects the fact that these ordinary citizens do not distinguish between documents and three-dimensional object...

As the quintessential personal digital archive, Facebook no longer requires an introduction; its user-base is currently estimated at one billion active monthly profiles, give or take a few fake accounts. On the front end, its the epitome of the user-generated content platform and of the postmodern living archive. Its underbelly, however, remains much less explored and theorized (Miller, 2006; Bennet 2010)...

The archival community struggles to fit in the private process of personal digital archiving. A common recommendation is to begin preservation far upstream, introducing archival practices early into the act of personal collection. But what may the archives best intentions introduce into the act of personal collection? Entering too early into the process may place undue influence on the decisions of the collector, the what gets kept and why? Active preservation of digital personal archives is nec...

Video games and gaming systems have evolved over the years several methods of file and character preservation: password codes, save states, and checkpoints all represent methods of digital record keeping that are standard features of gaming.
